Pre-law students can choose any major that interests them, as long as it is rigorous enough to help them develop good intellectual work habits and in-depth knowledge of a subject that interests them. Students are also encouraged to take courses that will enrich their understanding of law in society, such as political science courses focusing on the U.S. legal system and the development of the Constitution, philosophy courses that discuss ethics and communication courses. Or practice your skills with our nationally recognized speech and debate team.
Pre-law students receive one-on-one guidance as they prepare to take the LSAT and complete their applications for law school. Every Transylvania student we’ve recommended to law school has been accepted.
